Whether you think of them as “doughnuts” or “donuts,” you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make these sweet treats at home.
Dripping with chocolate glaze, bursting with sweet vanilla cream or blackberry jam filling, or simply rolled in cinnamon sugar—doughnuts, however you like them, can’t be beat when freshly made. And they’re surprisingly easy to fry—or bake—from scratch.
Glazed, Filled, Sugared & Dipped includes recipes for classic cake and yeast-raised doughnuts as well as for zeppole, beignets, churros, bomboloni, and doughnut holes—plus glazes, fillings, and sauces to mix and match. With more than 50 recipes and 50 full-color photographs, this cookbook will open up the wonderful world of homemade doughnuts to any home baker.
